If reduction regimes become sufficiently intense, sulfate is reduced to sulfide (van Breemen 1976), which then reacts with iron to form iron sulfide minerals.
In coal deposits, the surrounding rock typically contains 2-5% sulfides, most of which is pyrite.
The heavy metal sulfides also can be oxidized to much more soluble sulfates by dissolved [O.sub.2], releasing the toxic metals and rendering them biologically available.
Catalytic carbons can be used to treat sulfides in water because they promote the oxidation of sulfides using dissolved oxygen which is present in the water.
